Fritz Ballard's Beermaking Instructions

When my grandfather was a young man he used to make his own beer. After he died my mother found these beermaking instructions in his stuff. The instructions include decoction mashing, fermenting, bottling, and kegging, as well as a list of needed equipment, including directions for fabricating some of the equipment. All on 3.5 pages! There is also another half page that describes the recipe for one particular batch made on November 28, 1931.
